Dell Broadwell CPUs
Dell will also be offering a special edition of its Inspiron 13 7000 series 2-in-1 laptops in the US this March, exclusively at Best Buy. It’ll be sporting a new curved look with metal accents, but offers the same 360-degree hinged-design made popular by the Lenovo Yoga series.
LAS VEGAS — Dell’s latest Inspiron offerings aim to shake up the value line’s image, packing (optional) premium offerings into otherwise humdrum shells. The Insprion 15 5000 and 7000 series run on Intel’s new 5000 series CPUs — codenamed “Broadwell” — as well as discrete graphics options.
You’ll be forgiven if you’ve generally overlooked Inspiron machines: these budget boxes generally don’t offer much beyond the bare essentials, at cut-rate prices. But Intel’s Broadwell CPUs should offer compelling performance — and value — in thinner profiles. Dell also claims that the machines will be able to eke out up to 8 hours of battery life, depending on your configuration.

Let’s start with the higher end Dell Inspiron 15 7000. It starts at $1,100, which gets you a 2.7GHz Core i5-5200U processor on a 15-inch 1366 by 768 resolution display, Intel Integrated graphics, and up to 1TB of hard drive space, or 500GB of hard drive space coupled with an 8GB hybrid hard drive. The machines can be configured to up to a 3GHz Core i7-5500U CPU, a discrete AMD Radeon GPU, a 4K display and a 512GB SSD. UK and Australian prices weren’t announced, but $1,100 converts to around £725 or AU$1,355.
